Raiders place Chandler Jones on non-football illness list due to personal matter

Las Vegas Raiders pass rusher Chandler Jones has been placed on the team’s non-football illness list and will be out indefinitely as he deals with a personal issue, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday.

Jones previously was inactive for the first two games of the season and has not practiced this month due to a personal matter.

Jones, who has been away from the Raiders since the start of the season, indicated in since-deleted social media posts on Sept. 5 that he no longer wanted to play for head coach Josh McDaniels and general manager Dave Ziegler.

“It’s a personal situation and a private matter,” McDaniels told reporters on Sept. 6. “We have dealt with it, and I am not going to talk about it.”

Jones recorded 4.5 sacks in 15 games for the Raiders last season, his first in Las Vegas.
